Description J.Jansen 2006-05-04 09:37:52 UTC
Description of problem:
 when making connction with ssh and x11-forwarding enabled (i.e. ssh -Y from
another linux system) when using kernel-2107 the application running on the
kernel2107 system hangs and no display is opened on the server.

kernel-2096 workes fine on the same machine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):2107 (also tries 2108)

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install kernel 2107
2. boot into the new kernel
3. make an ssh connection with X-forwarding from a remote machine
     i.e. ssh -Y node
4. check if the DISPLAY environment variable is something like
     localhost:10 (if not set it to it)
5. issue the command : xclock
Actual results:
  command hangs, nothing happens

Expected results:
  Display the X-windows clock on the server
